Curt Schilling Getting Blasted After Sharing Anti-Trans Photo On Facebook

ESPN baseball analyst Curt Schilling has gotten in trouble on social media before, but he may have taken things to a new level Monday. According to a number of outlets, including Outsports, Schilling re-posted an anti-transgender meme Monday night, adding a particularly troubling message to the photo.

Schilling, predictably, is getting blasted for the move. He's been defending himself on Twitter for hours, clarifying that he didn't post the message originally.
